Amended: Twitter has NOT raised more funding.

Amended: Twitter has NOT raised more funding.


According to an SEC filing this morning, Twitter has raised a fifth round of funding.

The odd news is that it’s reportedly a much smaller round, only $5.2 million. While this might seem a lot for your average startup, for Twitter it’s minute in comparison to it’s last $100 million round in September.


The funds are in fact in relation to Twitter’s acquisition of Mixer Labs last year. The amount had not been disclosed, hence the filing this morning. At least we now know Twitter acquired Mixer Labs for $5.2 million.

Many apologies for the confusion guys. Ah the perils of blogging and breaking news.
